The College's diverse curriculum offers each student many choices, while the flexible but rigorous requirements ensure some common elements to every experience.
Every first-year student begins her journey with the Emily Balch Seminar, goes through the sophomore planning experience, and engages in advanced research and analysis in her major. Moreover, many students benefit from the opportunities for combined degrees. By design, however, the academic path is not simply a linear progress from A to B. Through advising and through the ethos of a holistic liberal arts education, students are invited to seek out a range of experiences inside and outside the classroom and to incorporate those insights into their own journey.
